    As of the 2022 report the ten hottest years on record for the planet were (in chronological order, not heat) - 2010, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022.

    In descending heat level- 2016, 2020, 2019, 2015, 2017, 2022, 2021, 2018, 2014, 2010.

    2023 was the hottest year since records began. So it knocked 2010 off the top ten. Making the last ten years the hottest 10 years on record. If you’re a visual learner here’s a graph -

      They’re not wrong though, and your graph supports that. Not sure if you’re stating one way or the other because this is just evidence which is often good.

      I saw the other comment where you linked to this one that seems to imply they are wrong and a bunch of people are down voting for some reason too.

      Some years will still be colder than the previous and specific regions will be warm/colder year over year as well.

      Averages of course only show signs of going up. Hope we somehow remedy that but the outlook of course does not look good.

        Weather is often used to argue that climate change isn’t real. This directly refutes that. And honestly who cares if 2025 is slightly colder than 2024 if it’s still landing in the top ten every year? At that point it’s just a technicality. It is getting hotter and a slight reprieve in the rate of increase isn’t going to change that.

          ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

          Both myself and that other person in this comment chain pretty much said things that agree with you. Think that other commenter was saying the same as well.

          I was pointing out that it didn’t really make sense they were getting down voted for making the distinction climate != weather while still noting that yes, the climate is slowly getting hotter and we aren’t doing enough to fix it.

          “It’s just weather cycles but we need to communicate climate reality more accurately.”
